Catamaran at Laem Chabang Port being lifted on to the vessel - CEA Logistics Transport and export project

Catamaran Transport & Export

CEA Project Logistics was contracted for the transport, storage and export of a Catamaran Ferry from Chonburi, Thailand to Freetown, Sierra Leone in West Africa.

The ferry was moored at Ocean Marina Yacht Club and was lifted from the water by the on-site Marine Straddle Carrier. CEA Teams were on hand to supervise the lift and to execute the lowering and loading onto a specially fabricated frame that was attached to a standard Lowbed transport trailer.

Due to the height restrictions on the roads during transport, the top section of the ferry was removed and loaded onto a separate trailer. After the CEA rigging teams had secured the ferry to the trailer, the prime mover and its cargo began the 33km journey to Laem Chabang. The ferry, upon arrival, was stored at the CEA Free Trade Zone until the shipping vessel Atlantic Dawn arrived.

After seven days in storage, the ferry was transported to Laem Chabang Port under CEA escort and readied for loadout which included the top section being reattached. Port and vessel stevedores executed the loading and stowage aboard the Atlantic Dawn. CEA provided all the necessary shipping and customs documentation in preparation of export.
